A member and method for anchoring and relieving the strain on a flexible, percutaneous lead which exits the body of a patient includes a flexible, elastomeric disc having a surface for contacting and conforming to the body of the patient. The surface is adhesively attached to the body at the location at which the lead exits the body. The opposite surface of the disc includes a bulbous shaped head. A passage extends through the adhesive, the disc and the head for snugly receiving the lead to extend therethrough. A slit may be provided in the disc between its perimeter and the passage for opening the disc to receive the lead in the passage and/or to remove the lead from the passage.
